Rockstar has brought the platform defining PSP game to the PlayStation 2. Now no one will miss out on this epic installment of the award winning franchise set in the nostalgic Liberty City.There are a million stories in Liberty City. This one changes everything. Once a trusted wise guy in the Leone crime family, Toni Cipriani was forced into hiding after killing a made man. Now he's back and it's time for things to be put right. The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring Mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Toni tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.

This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
What can I say about Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories that hasn't already been said? On the PSP, Rockstar offered a sprawling urban epic never before seen on a handheld. Despite, a single analog stick and only 2 shoulder buttons, which presented a challenge to controlling GTA on a handheld and a impossible camera control. LCS remained strong.
On the PS2 side of things, LCS is a direct to console port with some minor tweaks mainly to control and display. Whatever you got on the PSP is present on the PS2. Only the multiplayer is completely stripped with no Co-Op mode.
Liberty City Stories tells the tale of one Toni Cipriani, a regular-type mob guy who did a good deed for the head of the Leone crime family, Salvatore Leone. Toni had to go away for awhile, but the heat's died down, and he's back on the job in Liberty City, maintaining his loyalty to Sal while wiping out the family's enemies in droves along the way. As you ascend to become Salvatore's right-hand man, you'll start and finish gang wars with other mafia types, a few triads, the yakuza...pretty much all of the usual suspects are present.
Game play: is actually good. It's pretty much Vice City in Liberty City. Where as Vice City was a lush tropical environment, Liberty City is a dark and gritty place where it rains more than half the time. If you’re looking for more in the GTA world, than this game is great. That’s what we all want out of GTA anyway, to do whatever we want, go anywhere, and commit massive amounts of crime without getting caught. It has tons of fun side missions, and the story missions are tolerable at first. If you give it a chance and keep on pressing through, the missions start to get better and better, especially when you reach the newer islands. For a while it's like playing "GTA: The Sopranos". Then it just gets out of control. Liberty City itself is the same map as GTA III only the bridges and tunnels aren't built yet and there are some new locations to see. There is a Little Italy Section in Fort Staunton and a ferry terminal on each island. The absence of these sites in GTA III is explained in the games main story arc. The story takes you roughly 10 hours to complete and then offers a host of side jobs to keep your interest.
Graphics: is where it fails for me. The transition from PSP to PS2 was not good at all. Not clear and refined as GTA III. The pedestrians don’t look good, the buildings and skyscrapers are beautifully designed, but not clean and crisp. The graphics are less refined, but the frame rate is more stable. There are more objects on screen, less pop up, too much rain and fog obscuring the screen. It seemed to me in my opinion the developers were too lazy to improve the graphics for the PS2.
Music: standard with any GTA game with a good variety of music and songs to listen to. (Methodman, Redman, Raekwon, Big Pun, The Lox, & DMX all mixed by DJ Clue) Techno (Rise), or Break Beats (MSX 9). The rest of the stations have filler music from bands you've never heard of, or it was studio produced for the game. Lazlow is back on the talk radio station, and he's hilarious.
Sound: is great. We've got low powered engines, high-powered engine sounds, Motorcycle revs, Moped revs, and Choppers (helicopters), Speedboats and very realistic gun sounds.
All in all, if you like the GTA series and you have played Grand Theft Auto III, than Liberty City Stories is a good compilation to add to your collection if you don’t mind the less than average graphics.

Liberty City Stories pales in comparison to the "real" Grand Theft Auto games developed by Rockstar North, and this port to PS2 feels suspiciously like a cash-in, something the megapopular series has been very careful about in the past. Without the benefit of running on a portable platform, all of this game's problems stick out in a much more noticeable fashion. The writing isn't up to par with the past games, the mission design is often dull, and overall, the game feels like the mechanics of GTA, without the attention to detail and care that was put into the previous console installments of the game. That said, since it's available for only $*, some of these things can be overlooked--but make sure to set your expectations accordingly.

WOW this is a great game! the first time i played it it was the only thing i did for a couple of months! this game has the best story line in my opinion. It stays focused and connected to the same idea, unlike San Andreas what with the "green goo". If you are looking for a good game, CHECK THIS OUT!!!

gta lcs was good but not too much to expect if you've played gta III but I think lcs was a little better than gta III because liberty city was a little bigger and had more variety of weapons but overall good game but but they should of made it better since it's newer than san andreas but rockstar probably wanted gta san andreas to be historical.

This game is really cool. It's a great sandbox, and just really fun. Ten dollars is a good cost for this game, and it is worth the money.

I,ve felt like I,ve played this before, I mean this game is almost the same as gta 3, the city is the same, the character in this looks just like Claude from gta 3, the weapons are changed up by a little bit, and the characters look like they got their faces stomped on 100 times, storyline was boring, vehicles were awful, the camera hates you, I mean their is more to do in this, I would much rather play this than gta 3, but im not the biggest fan of this one, but its ''ok''.
